R3E AND FALKEN TYRE EUROPE PRESENT VIRTUAL RACING THRILLS

SWEDEN, LIDKÖPING, January 13, 2014 – Starting from today, full-range specialist Falken Tyre Europe teams up with game developers SimBin Studios and publisher RaceRoom Entertainment to present the Falken Track Test Competition, a part of the free to play concept RaceRoom Racing Experience also known as R3E.

The Nürburgring GP circuit sets the scene for the high-speed chase in which gamers can take the characteristic turquoise-and-blue Falken racer to new record-breaking lap times, win prizes and have an exhilarating motorsports experience. 

“Scores of motorsports fans around the world dream of it: being at the helm of a racing car themselves, flooring the throttle, working the wheel, and keeping the vehicle’s skidding rear under control. With its realistic motorsport simulator, “RaceRoom Racing Experience”, SimBin allows thousands of gamers to feel the excitement - at home, on their own screens.”   says Dennis Wilstermann, Falken Tyres Europe.
